Gladiator Socks are cut-resistant socks that gives honey players an extra layer of protection against injury. While hokey players wear a great deal of protective equipment, their legs are still vulnerable to blade-related injuries. These durable hockey socks help prevent such injuries with cut-resistant material.

Gladiator Socks are full-leg socks that span from the ankle to the thigh. Unlike knit hockey socks, these socks feature a polyester shell and a liner made from Dyneema. Dyneema is the world's strongest fiber and it makes the Gladiator Socks 50 percent more cut-resistant than traditional hockey socks. This allows the socks to provide safe coverage from blade injuries between the ankle to thigh.

While the socks are made for hockey, the same material could be used to help protect against different kinds of athletic injuries.
